Matthew Amoah out of Swaziland clash

Posted: 2 September 2010 Time: 07:12 am

Ghana will be without Dutch based striker Matthew Amoah for the 2010 Nations Cup qualifier againstSwaziland on Sunday. 

The NAC Breda man who has been in fantastic goal scoring form at the beginning of the Dutch season with four goals in four matches reportedly picked an injury in the last league game and will be absent as a result, Black Stars officials told KickOffGhana.com.   Amoah’s absence leaves Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac with 21 players to pick from for the qualifier against Swaziland and denies him the use of arguably the country’s most inform striker at the moment.   He was top goal scorer during the qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup but was upstaged in the goal scoring stakes by Asamoah Gyan at both the Nations Cup and the World Cup.

Nobody will miss his absence.Its rather an opportunity for someone younger to get the chance to improve.I dont remember the last time this guy scored a goal for Black Stars.

@ Ichiban.... I'm on your side when you say, Amoah's absence will give a younger one the opportunity, but I you say you don't remember the last time Amoah scored for Ghana, then it means you've not been foolowing the BS. Mybe you just became a fan during this WC.
Amoah has always been top scorer for the BS when it comes to the qualifiers. The only problem with him is, he doesn't click during big tournaments. Ironically, that is where Asamaoh Gyan also shines, although he hardly scores during qualifiers.
